Tell Congress how you feel about care I was in the middle of the third row center at Rep. Adam Schiff’s town hall earlier this month in Alhambra (“Crowds riled up about healthcare,” Aug. 12). The expert panel event was well moderated, well managed and very informative. I and other Burbank neighbors who came to support the congressman’s proper position in support of the public option were proud to recognize that our side was not outnumbered. Sitting with us in seats for disabled and elderly, we were able to talk with the persons around us and even at one point shared food back and forth before the event began.

I now officially weep for the future. ?Faux?-ality TV has run amok, creating senseless drivel for all of the mindless drones that inhabit our fragile planet. I am completely unable to read the newspaper or intelligently surf television in search of even mildly educational or morally sustainable programming without the bombardment of the flavor of the month, Jon & Kate plus Octo-mom shenanigans, numerous bubbly inflated bosom-bimbos exploits, and what was once all music video channels now displays what happens when socially deficient spotlight heathens reproduce and parents fail to inoculate their young against stupidity.

BURBANK — As city officials are looking into the possibility of archiving City Council meetings on the Web, somebody beat them to the punch — sort of. A person posting as "betterburbank" has uploaded several clips from City Council meetings on youtube.com — a popular file-sharing site, which Internet giant Google bought on Monday for $1.65 billion, that allows users to share video footage worldwide. The majority of the betterburbank-posted segments, which have been edited and run between two and five minutes long, show Burbank residents speaking during the council meeting's public comment period.

Lately I?ve been working in an office. It?s a part-time, freelance, maybe it will last, maybe it won?t, ?let?s just have some laughs and see where this goes, babe? kind of thing. And, in addition to my newfound ability to afford postage stamps and brand-name cola, I?ve discovered a clear advantage to the cubicle life: I?ve discovered why I left. The beige walls, the clock-watching, the toxic fountain of guilt known as the candy dish, the oppressive bureaucracy that insists that $1,500 worth of man hours be spent figuring out how to get insurance to pay for a $200 doctor visit.

BURBANK — With sustainability as one of the City Council’s top priorities for the year, the airport is doing its part to keep in line. At the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority meeting on Tuesday, staff discussed renovations that have made the airport a more efficient, eco-friendly force in the community. Hands-free faucets and recycled paper in restrooms as well as the replacement of incandescent taxiway lighting with an LED system are some of the green features implemented recently at the airport.

Stan Lynch had a day off from school Feb. 5, 1959, and witnessed then-Mayor H.B. Jerry Bank install a time capsule behind a plaque on the newly built bridge on Magnolia Boulevard. Lynch sat at the same site Thursday with his son Stephen Lynch and Mayor Dave Golonski to unearth a piece of history: a 50-year- old silver-plated lead tube containing images of Burbank buildings and golf courses from a bygone era. To the side of a closed-off lane on the Magnolia bridge, city officials gathered with a crowd of photographers to delicately extract the capsule from the concrete with a hammer and pick.

JOYCE RUDOLPH Many of us who grew up in Burbank remember spending the summers swimming at the Pickwick pool. In an effort to preserve memories for their family's posterity, current owners Carole and Ed Stavert are on a quest to find photographs and information on Pickwick's past, prior to when their family purchased the facility in 1953. The family changed the name to Pickwick Gardens three or four years ago from Pickwick Recreation Center. When the Stavert family purchased it, it was called the Pickwick Swim Park.

Ryan Carter The display cabinet in which Dan Hofeld displays pagers for sale is getting smaller as his business stocks up on vintage radios. With cell phones gradually taking the place of pagers, Hofeld and his sister, Ellen DiGiovanni, have decided not to chase technology. Instead, they have gone back in time and are specializing in antique radios. For the past four years, their Antique Radio Store, at 3819 W. Magnolia Blvd., has specialized in selling and repairing radios that date back to the 1920s.
